KUALA LUMPUR (May 27): Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) will make a formal announcement on the application of Ampang member of parliament Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin to join the party after its president Larry Sng returns from abroad.
In a statement on Friday, Sng said that he is leaving the country on Friday and is expected to return home on June 7.
He said he has just been informed about Zuraida's announcement to join PBM.
